BIO

Emily Clibourn began songwriting and recording at the age of 13, when she and her family moved to Los Angeles from a small town outside of Chicago. She first pursued an acting career, gaining credits in national commercials and receiving various roles, including one in the mini- series Heartbreak High, USA and another in Children on Their Birthdays. Emily then decided to go down a more suitable and creative road as a musician and has since recorded numerous records under various projects and her writing has been features in TV and film. Since the age of 13, she has played at numerous venues in Los Angeles such as, Hotel Cafe, Room 5, The Virgil, OSSO, Villain's Tavern and Piano Bar.

 

Blow is Emily’s debut studio album in collaboration with Emmy-winning composers/producers Brett Cookingham and Matt Pavolaitis. Blow was funded by a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign created by Emily in the summer of 2015, and is said to be deeply emotional, howling and vulnerable. Emily is a siren for a generation, beckoning for self discovery.

 

Emily completed a 6-week national tour in the summer of 2016 to promote Blow, playing at venues like The Beacon Theater (Hopewell, VA), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), The Underground Lounge (Chicago), Cactus Music (Houston, TX), Cactus Cafe (Austin, TX) and The Lost Leaf (Phoenix, AZ) to name a few. She is now incubating her sophmore album.

 

     • Blow was premiered in Yahoo Music’s Artist Rising.

     • In May of 2016, Fly, a song off Blow, was featured on in the Beats By Dre Coachella ad.

 

     • Clibourn was recently featured in Music Connection’s Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists and Bands, where they praised her for her  “clairvoyant   

        song craft and vivid artistry.”


     • On January 20th, 2016, Beautiful Girls, the first song off Blow, was featured on television show, MTV’s The Challenge.

 

     • Beautiful Girls, the first song off Blow, won Best Song Pop Ballad for May 2016 from The Akademia.

RAVE OVER BLOW

 

"'I’ve been sanctified'.  So sings Emily Clibourn in her new song, and I feel sanctified.  If a voice can save, Clibourn is the one to listen...Thank you, Emily.  Clibourn has one of those voices that actually takes you heavenward. Her voice is similar to Jewel at her best.  Her new LP is set to be released this summer.  I am ready to have her save me."

-Audiofuzz

"Emily Clibourn has a trance inducing vocal style, lyrical trickery, and the aura of a shaman."

-Mark Paurperas

"If there were sirens out there, casting their aural nets to lure unsuspecting sailors to their death, the choir would be led by the beautiful voice of Clibourn. Let’s put it this way: if music were romance, Clibourn’s music would be sex."

-AudioFuzz

""With Florence and the Machine and Lana Del Rey providing contemporary reference points; Clibourn is perhaps better compared to jazz and soul musicians of old, drawing from a classic but still beguiling creative treasure trove. There's doubtlessly a timeless quality to her vocal, which licks and curls like a cat around her piano-based style of sound. Excellent production seals the deal, and makes this lady one to watch in the not too distant future." 

-Drunken Werewolf

"Fans of Florence, Duffy, Lorde and Lana Dey Rey should get ready for Emily Clibourn. She is what Lana is trying to be...except she doesn't have to try. She just oozes cool and this girl is talented as hell! I think, if promoted correctly, she could be bigger and outlast a lot of those ladies as well. See why for yourself."

-Solcofn

"Blow is a passionate madness polarized between a kind of lethargic carelessness and obsessed mania."
